Dojo-ji, in Kawabe-cho, Wakayama Prefecture, is believed to have been built at the order of Emperor Tenmu in 701, making it the oldest temple in the prefecture. The drama of Anchin and Kiyo-hime, set in Dojo-ji, became the material for plays known as Domyo-ji dramas, and performed in the traditional Japanese Noh and kabuki theaters. In the temple precincts are Anchins mound, a bell tower, snake mounds, and other features connected to the story. Dojo-ji is also famous for cherry blossoms, and at their peak the temple bustles with crowds of sightseers.'
